Alfred Angelo Closed Its Stores and Brides Are Rightly Bugging Out

16 July 2017

Thousands of brides-to-be around the country are without a wedding dress after the popular designer, Alfred Angelo closed more than 60 stores without notice.

In a letter to customers, a lawyer for Alfred Angelo, Kimberly Redmond, wrote that the company would "encourage" the bankruptcy trustee to "finish and fulfill as many orders as possible", according to the Times report. Blackman had a receipt for one woman who had paid Alfred Angelo more than $2,000 for a dress and veil, but the veil was the only thing she could rescue. Its "customer care" account hasn't tweeted since July 5.

Dress retailer Alfred Angelo Bridal filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation in Florida on Friday. Redmond said she wanted it that way, to be sure customers got a response.

"Finding a dress, finding someone to marry us, and decorations which we're doing ourselves", said bride-to-be Gina Pucci of her to-do list for her upcoming wedding.

"They're literally filing for bankruptcy", said Pucci.

Additionally, a search through the #alfredangelo tag on Twitter brings up some brides who are willing to donate their own dresses for those left in the cold because of the sudden store closures. Inside: the dress ordered from Alfred Angelo in June.

Others who weren't so lucky shared another strategy: going to a competitor (several are offering discounts to Alfred Angelo's customers) - and contacting credit card companies to try to claw back payments.

"Right now I'm just angry because that was my own money, that was my own investment", Wilkowski said.
